One of the most important places of pilgrimage in the Czech Republic – Stará Boleslav – stands right next to the Elbe. It is associated with the cult of St. Wenceslas. You will find everything interesting along the former main road, which forms the axis of the city. The most important monument and dominant feature of the city is undoubtedly the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

PP Hluchov

If you take a tour of the town of Stará Boleslav from the south, you will first cross the bridge over the Elbe and then the natural monument Hluchov. Just before the beginning of the city is a pretty photogenic pond

From the other side of the area you can see a significantly smaller church of St. Clement. There is also a statue of Pope Benedict

If you continue further north, you will come across an interesting monument to the victims of the war

Chapel of Blessed Wonder

The historical center of Stará Boleslav ends at the chapel of Blessed Podiven. Right behind it is the bus station (lines running, for example, to Černý Most in Prague)

View of the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

On the other hand, the church looks even more impressive. The afternoon visit came to me as a good time with a nice light on all the monument. The only downside is the busy road leading through the city
